Yeah, I can't wait for this to be resolved because my 9.4 zettabyte drive is just sitting on a shelf collecting dust right now. lol!
This issue used to burn me but it just pushed me to get a NAS and it was for the best. Having a NAS is a solid investment for any cable-cutter because it can just run in the background as a silent downloader, readily supply Boxee and XBMC with all your media, have RAID & backup protection. Imagine if that USB drive with 3TB of your content failed?
Got the NAS, bottle of Jim Bean, sold the WD 3TB drive for $20 less than what I paid for after 1 year of usage. Paid it all off before the Kernel Update Fix came out. Good Riddance. Thank you for indirectly making me do the inevitable Boxee, I know I give you guys a hard time and probably not in your good books :-)
